BAI Releases 2016 Infographic
11 Jan 2017 : Deirdre Hopkins
The Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) today (11.01.17) released its end-of-year infographic, charting much of its activity over 2016.

Looking at four key areas: funding, licensing, complaints, sponsorship and sectoral development, in 2016, the BAI:

  • Offered €16.7m in funding for 355 radio and TV projects across 55 broadcasters.
  • Received 133 complaints relating to programming and advertisements broadcast on Irish radio and television.
  • Allocated €406,000 to training and development initiatives and provided €130,000 in sponsorship to events and activities.
  • Progressed the re-licensing of a range of commercial and community radio services and awarded 15 temporary radio licences.
  • Issued almost 500 social media posts supporting and promoting the Irish broadcasting sector.

The infographic also sets out the BAI’s key objectives for 2017 – 2019, covering the areas of Diversity and Plurality; Audience Empowerment; Enhancing Innovation and Sectoral Sustainability; Achieving Excellence and Accountability, and Communicating and Influencing.

More details on these areas will be published in the coming weeks with the launch of the BAI’s new Strategy Statement 2017 – 2019.
